2014 MLB Draft: Dodgers pick Colin Hering in 10th round

Coastal Carolina University

Hering hit .213/.283/.264 as a senior at Coastal Carolina.

NEW YORK, NY -- The Dodgers made their final pick of Friday, selecting outfielder Colin Hering from Coastal Carolina University in the 10th round of the 2014 MLB Draft. The Dodgers made eight selections on Friday, including seven college players.

The 6'3, 215-pound Washington native hit .213/.283/.264 with six extra-base hits in 55 games, and was eight-for-18 in stolen base attempts as a senior in 2014. But apparently Hering is known for his defense, as this first YouTube search result implies:

Hering fared much better at the plate in 2013, hitting .297/.407/.375 as a junior. He bats left-handed and throws left-handed. Prior to his two years at Coastal Carolina, Hering played two years at Bellevue College in Washington.

The allotted slot value for the No. 309 overall pick is $137,600, but this looks much more like the Dodgers' ninth and 10th round picks in 2013, Hank Yates and Nick Keener, who each signed for $5,000 in order to spend money elsewhere in the draft.
